Las Vegas is home to some of the best quality dining options in America and oysters are no exception. Most locals know, however, that this unique seafood dish can be found in plenty of places beyond the hustle of the Strip.
Here are five of our favorites.
The most well-known of the bunch, Oyster Bar at Palace Station is a Vegas institution.
One of the only seafood restaurants in Las Vegas open round-the-lock, this not-so-hidden-gem is a step above the rest when it comes to its allure and demand. Seriously, be prepared to wait as long as two hours or more as the very limited seating is always in demand.
But the wait is simply a part of the experience and it makes the dishes taste even better – we swear.
Right off the casino floor next to the GVR Sports Book, Tides gets fresh seafood six days a week, more frequent than most of the freshest seafood spots in Las Vegas.
In addition to traditional oysters, you absolutely need to try their char-broiled oysters – their chef swears they are the best in Las Vegas (they might be biased but we trust them).

Arguably the most fun room on the list, Sunset Station’s Oyster Bar is inside grotto-like structure, complete with small waterfalls. It’s only steps off the casino floor but it feels a world away.
They’ve got oysters all sorts of ways. Try them raw or grilled – either are delicious. The bartop service also gives you a show as you watch your meal getting prepped.
The next time you’re in Henderson, stop in and see why locals love this spot.
When it comes to dining in Vegas, it’s all about the atmosphere. Bottiglia is beautiful both indoors and outdoors so you can enjoy your surroundings with friends or family.
And be sure to bring your friends because Bottiglia is all about sharing. Take their Grand Shellfish Tower, for example. After you snap a photo of the dish and share it to Instagram, be sure to share it in real life because it’s too good for your group to pass up.
The Oyster Bar inside Santa Fe Station is a treat for locals in North Las Vegas. Why? The location dishes out amazing quality seafood BUT typically there is less of a wait time to get it than some of the other spots we’ve visited. Win-win, right?
The large room features bartop or true table seating and it recently opened for lunch so you can get your oyster fix at almost any time of day.
